LAWRENCE, Ind. — The Lawrence Police Department says an 18-year-old man has died after being shot in a car near Lawrence Central High School.

Shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to calls of a person shot near the intersection of Boy Scout Road and East 56th Street, which is about .4 miles away from the high school.

Witnesses told police they heard gunshots from inside a car at the intersection. The car then proceeded to crash into an electrical pole, and three individuals exited the car and fled south on Boy Scout Road.

Responding officers were able to locate these individuals and take them into custody for questioning.

Police say the victim was the driver of the vehicle and was taken to Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition. He later died from his injuries. On Thursday, he was identified as Domanic Jones.

Detectives say the shots fired at the black Chevy driven by Jones may have been fired by suspect(s) driving a second vehicle that may have pulled up next to Jones at the intersection. No description of that vehicle was provided, other than it was possibly a sedan.

Anyone with additional information can call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS (8477) to submit an anonymous tip.
